Happy Halloween!!!

My husband is out taking the kids trick-or-treating and I am sitting here waiting to hand candy out to the kids in our neighborhood. I thought I would post a few pictures of my three little cuties!! Maddi is the puppy (so not into this, and is sitting home with me!), Allison is Cleopatra, and Dominic is the vampire. He is calling himself Count Dominic tonight! I hope you all are having a great night!!

Friday Sketchers

It has been at least a month since I have played along over at Friday Sketchers, so I am super excited to post this today!! I just love the sketch that Aud created. The tag kinda freaked me out for some reason, but I think I was able to pull it off!! The DP is Basic Grey and the stamp set is called Crazy for Cupcakes by SU! I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. The lighting was kinda off outside, but it is the first sunny day in over a week so I had to take it out there!! Have a fun night tonight!!!!

Gettin Sketch with the Corny Family!

I am so excited to have finally made a card for Get Sketchy's Challenge Blog!! Yea! I have been wanting to participate for weeks and things kept getting in the way! I just love this sketch- so clean and fun! I bought this paper at Hobby Lobby about a month ago when I was first introduced to Heather's adorable Candy Corn images at Fresh Brewed Designs. I knew exactly which image I wanted to use when I saw the sketch, but when I went to print it it was NOWHERE to be found on my computer. Luckily Heather is a total sweetheart and sent it to me again!!! Thanks so much!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
